Despite being sold and marketed as a thriller, the most interesting aspects of "Shot Caller" are the dramatic ones.

The disappointment of what this movie could have been dogs it as it navigates safe, predictable roads to a preordained conclusion.

An Oscar-wannabe that didn’t make the cut and is being released in mid-August hoping to find a small audience.

Run Time: 2:17

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Science Fiction
Director: Luc Besson
Cast: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke

On a purely visual level, "Valerian" is a top contender, but as a complete motion picture experience, it falls considerably short.

Director: Gillian Robespierre

An ensemble of solid performances with some affecting moments is ultimately undone by a storyline that treads too-common ground for American indie films.

Although this "Homecoming" serves its purpose, it’s just a forgettable waystation on the MCU map, where all roads lead to "Infinity War".

An example of how even the most promising animated franchises can hit a wall if allowed to continue too long.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Sofia Coppola

Despite having been feted at Cannes 2017, Coppola isn’t working at the level where she once toiled.

Run Time: 1:34
U.S. Release Date: 2017-06-30
MPAA Rating: "NR" (Profanity)

The movie contains some tremendous individual scenes but the whole isn’t better than the sum of its parts.

The fifth movie sticks to the formula and delivers the third-most entertaining entry into the series, which is probably about the best one can hope for at this stage of its existence.
